CAP. 8

(p. 47) Denzel Holles was the eldest sonne of Sir William Holles by dame Anne his wife. He was borne in London but the day of his birth I have not met with. The yeare that he was borne may be recovered by an estimate taken by the yeare of his age wch is upon the picture I have of him at Grymesby, and upon that at Houghton.a Certaine it is he was borne before the death of Sir William Holles his grandfather who died in the yeare 1542, though he be not by name mentioned in his last will. But in the last will of his grandmother Dame Elizabeth Holles, (wch beares date ao 1543) shee gives a legacy to him by name. His mother's sirname gave him his christian name of Denzel, shee (it seemes) desiring as long as shee well could to continue the memory of hir owne name and family.

He married Elianor daughter of Edmund Lord Sheffeld of Butterwicke, 1 the first Baron of that race. The time of their marriage seemes to be neare the close of Q. Marie's raigne. For I finde a deed amongst the Earle of Clare's evidences bearing date the 17th of September in the 6th yeare of hir raigne (Q. Mary died the 17th of November following) by wch the Mannour of Irby and other landes in the county of Lincolne are setled upon them in consideration of a marriage to be betwixt them, by Sir William Holles. The deed as it is abbreviated runs thus--

[Deed granting to Denzel Holles and his wife Eleanor the manor of Irby and lands in Caistor, Cabourne, Cadney, Nettleton, Smythefield, South Willingham, and Moulton in Lincolnshire.]

His lot falling thus by his father's appointment in Lincolneshire he seated himselfe at Irby (fower miles distant from Great Grimesby) lying at the entrance upon the Woldes, a place happy in the sweetnes of the ayre and very delectable by the pleasant hilles and dales where there are dry and inviting walkes both summer and winter, with a welcome prospect towardes the sea, affording withall as good

Upon his picture it is thus--ao Dn + ̄i 1586. Aetat. suae 48. So it seemes he was borne in or about the yeare 1538.
